Who wore it best?
You spent Valentine's Day with them, you've worked more turtlenecks into your wardrobe and you mostly respond to texts with "SWISH" or "at the zoo with my boo and my baby boo." But how else to pledge your fealty to Kimye? Australian graphic artist Georgia Perry's new Kim and Kanye lapel pins should do the trick. Perry's selling the pins for $15 AUD (that's about $12 USD) and her collection also includes Beyonce and Jay-Z, Elaine Benes and Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David -- for days you're feeling pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good -- and Oprah, because obviously. Mix and match or wear them all at once to become a walking Tumblr account. Check them out below and see more of Perry's pins here.
Sufjan Stevens' intimate new album is now streaming. Like the previously released tracks from the project, "No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross" and "Should Have Know Better" -- in which Stevens expounds upon that time his mom left him at a video store when he was three -- Carrie & Lowell is quietly devastating. An exploration of "life and death, love and loss, and the artist's struggle to make sense of the beauty and ugliness of love," listen to the full, 11-track album, above. Carrie & Lowell is out March 31st.
It's about damn time we, as a society, had an 8-minute Tom Hanks film retrospective. Thanks to James Corden, who enjoyed a solid premiere as the new Late Late Show host last night, we can now relive every Tom Hanks highlight from the obligatory Forrest Gump to Big to Toy Story in a reasonable amount of time (Why do Tom Hanks movies always feel like 3+ hours long??). View the essential supercut, above.
Keep an eye out for more news about Zoolander 2, which is said to begin filming in Rome this spring and come out next February.
At PAPER there seem to be two types of people: those who religiously attend SoulCycle classes every other day and those who haven't set foot in a gym since high school. Against all odds, the spin freaks managed to convince the rest of us to take part in a team ride at SoulCycle's Chelsea studio and it was a big success. Our wonderful instructor, Mantas, who wore a t-shirt that said "Surf, Yoga, Beer" on it simultaneously inspired and scared the shit out of the new riders but ultimately got everyone's heart pumping when Michael Jackson came on during the class. Legs shaking, dripping with sweat, everyone survived the ride and many agreed that they couldn't wait to come back. Maybe next time we can even convince Mr. Mickey to ride in the front row.
Well, well, well. It's 2015 and notorious social media critic Marc Jacobs is finally on Instagram. Looks like the designer's first post is a quasi-art-selfie, sans filter. (Stars, they're just like us!) While this is Marc Jacobs' first personal Instagram post in the history of ever, it should be noted that Marc Jacobs' dog, on the other hand, has had an Instagram account for years. The dog, Neville Jacobs, even gave his dad a shout out. How generous. Welcome to Instagram,

In a new interview with Elle, Fran Lebowitz talks at length about her timeless personal style and what's wrong with everyone else's. An equal opportunity critic, Fran has harsh words for everyone from wearers of yoga pants to wearers of down jackets ("Please. Are you skiing, or are you walking across the street? If you're not an arctic explorer, dress like a human being.") to non-models ("Remember when the style was incredibly messy hair? That's great if
you're a model. But if you're not a model, you would look better if you
washed your hair, because you are not beautiful.") to steeze jackers ("I feel very strongly that almost the entire city has copied my glasses.") -- but her most withering critique is directed at men in shorts:
"I have to say that one of the biggest changes in my lifetime, is the phenomenon of men wearing shorts. Men never wore shorts when I was young. There are few things I would rather see less, to tell you the truth. I'd just as soon see someone coming toward me with a hand grenade. This is one of the worst changes, by far. It's disgusting. To have to sit next to grown men on the subway in the summer, and they're wearing shorts? It's repulsive. They look ridiculous, like children, and I can't take them seriously. It's like any other sort of revealing clothing, in that the people you'd most like to see them on aren't wearing them. And if they are, it's probably their job to wear them. My fashion advice, particularly to men wearing shorts: Ask yourself, 'Could I make a living modeling these shorts?' If the answer is no, then change your clothes. Put on a pair of pants."Or, to paraphrase: Men in shorts: Shut. It. Down. Xoxo, Fran.
But it would be unfair to say that Fran didn't leave us with any positive, constructive criticism. After all, she's only trying to help:
"Not all of us are beautiful. But we can appear fine looking."Read the rest of the interview over at Elle.

The British Pathe's YouTube archive is a treasure trove of fabulously British '60s ephemera, including this hilarious 1963 segment unearthed by Dangerous Minds via Weird Universe of a teenage beatnik girl being made over into a beeeeautiful woman. When we meet our teen beatnik, she's walking down the street in an over-sized beatnik black sweater with a beatnik cigarette hanging out of her mouth and her beatnik bangs in her face. Soon, she is lured into a beauty parlor "where smart, chic women pretty themselves." Inside, a crack team of beauticians start chipping away at her dirty bohemian shell, literally rubbing a bowl of raw eggs in her hair (?) and painting her face with hot wax. In the end, she emerges refreshed and re-newed as a middle-aged woman with huge hair. She seriously could pass for 40. Give your mom an extra-big hug the next time you see her, because she had to grow up with this. Watch above.
Getting on Jeopardy is an intensive process including a difficult quiz and multiple auditions, not to mention the studying you have to cram in if you're chosen, so once you're actually behind your podium you'd better make your introduction segment with Alex Trebek worth it. Academic librarian and Greenpoint resident Jill Locascio knew this and seized her one-on-one screen time with Trebek to invite him to her monthly DJ gig at Williamsburg's Metropolitan Bar. Trebek responds with a wan "alright," which anyone who has been to Metropolitan's free Sunday summer BBQs knows is a mistake. He could be dancing to Robyn in the sun with a margarita and some potato salad that's been sitting out, but no. Though she flubbed her final Jeopardy answer, Locascio still did New York proud, nailing a question about goths. The Village Voice has a fun interview with her that you can read here. Watch Trebek blow it in the clip above.
Four years after we last saw them, the Entourage bros are back and still down to party. In the new trailer for their upcoming movie, we see what they've been up to these last few years: Ari has been promoted to studio head (we don't know where), Vince is going to direct a movie, E and Sloan are having a baby and Turtle and Drama are still hanging. Besides catching us up to speed on their lives, the two and a half minute clip features a football team's worth of cameos that include everyone from Calvin Harris, Jessica Alba, Russell Wilson, Emily Ratajkowski, Liam Neeson and Pharrell to Ronda Rousey, Bob Saget, David Spade, Andrew Dice Clay, George Takei, Warren Buffett, Armie Hammer, Tom Brady, Kelsey Grammer, Ed O'Neill, T.I., Nina Agdal and Mark Wahlberg. The movie comes out on June 5th so you have plenty of time to round up your boys (and girls) for opening night.
Continuing the trend of brands desperately trying to reach millennials, McDonald's just launched what they're calling a "lifestyle collection," apparently for those proudly who lead that Big Mac lifestyle.
The collection includes home goods like wallpaper and bed sheets, as well as clothing -- for humans and dogs alike -- featuring a Big Mac print. According to AdWeek, McDonald's foray into fashion launched Tuesday at a "McWalk" fashion show in Stockholm, Sweden.
Unfortunately (or fortunately?) McDonald's new lifestyle collection is currently only available in Sweden, but burger-enthusiasts can peruse the Big Mac Shop here.
To the crushing sound of a million "NOOOOOOWHYYYY" tweets being sent at once, Zayn Malik announced that he's leaving the boy band One Direction. Although no one knows why Zayn decided to leave the band (the official party line is "stress"), perhaps he had a change of heart about the band's ethos after he discovered that a multitude of other directions actually do exist. While we may never know the real reason why our beloved Zayn abandoned ship, there are more pressing questions to answer, like: Is Wendy Williams in One Direction now?
The talk show host recently gave her thoughts on One Direction's situation with Zayn before he announced that he was leaving the band. In the midst of the controversy surrounding Zayn's decision to take a break from the band's current tour, Wendy Williams offered up her harsh opinion in a segment on The Wendy Williams Show. Almost too harsh. Suspiciously harsh, one could say. "I feel as though if you can do five-part harmony, it's just as easy to do four-part harmony," Williams said. "I say kick this guy out of the group because now, that's more money for the rest of us. We don't have to split our money five ways."
More money for the rest of us? We?
Then Williams went on to refute the possibility of replacing Zayn with a new bandmate: "We don't need to audition anybody new."
Oh. Is that because YOU'VE ALREADY REPLACED HIM, WENDY?? I'm not saying, I'm just saying. #Justice4Zayn

The fiery Chicago rapper Tink just shared a music video featuring Timbaland for her latest single, "Rachet Commandments." The new track and visuals have her preaching in the club while warding off scrubs of all kinds indiscriminately. Turns out that it takes quite a lot to be able to sit with Tink. Watch the "Rachet Commandments" video, above.

Though it wasn't slated to drop until next week, Kendrick Lamar's much anticipated, exceptionally titledTo Pimp a Butterfly was released in-full last night on iTunes ahead of its 3/23 release date.
Though leaks and surprise early-releases are pretty much now de rigueur, the CEO of Kendrick's label, Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith, apparently wasn't happy.
Any issues with Interscope have apparently been swept under the rug, however, with Lamar later tweeting this:
Keep calm. All is well.-- Kendrick Lamar (@kendricklamar) March 16, 2015

Jimmy Kimmel's Lie Witness News returns with a special President Obama Edition, in honor of POTUS' visit to the show last week. (Watch him read some wonderfully vicious tweets HERE.) In the segment, the Kimmel Krew asks passerby on Hollywood Blvd. their opinions on everything from Obama's new earrings to the fact that he didn't circumcise his new son, Marcus. Their answers will make your palms sweat and prove once again that if you put a camera in peoples' faces, they'll lie their asses off.
